I'm currently developing an Android app using OpenCV 2.4.5 for motion detection. Everything worked fine on different devices, but recently I discovered a problem with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (tested on model numbers GT-P7510 and GT-P7500, both Android 4.0.4): There's probably something like a file descriptor leak, the camera dies and the app crashes with a SIGSEGV. Sometimes this problem occurs after the app has been running for up to 15 hours, sometimes only after a few minutes.

I downloaded the OpenCV Face Detection demo (the version from Google Play) and could reproduce this error. After about 4 minutes the demo app crashed. Logcat showed the following:

I have exactly the same problem on GT-P7500 Android 4.0.3, although I am not using OpenCV, just regular camera API and onPreviewFrame callback. Did you manage to find any workaround?

It looks like some bug inside OpenCV or Android camera. I recommend you to create issue on OpenCV issue tracker.
